Chef Krit Prathuangsukh
Chef Krit invites you to discover a new modern Thai dining experience at basil.
A master of Thai cuisine, Chef Krit Prathuangsukh has revitalized basil with the introduction of a new menu concept that feature contemporary interpretations of regional favorites loved by locals. Expertly prepared without compromising authentic flavors, the exciting new dishes are the "same same…but different".
Chef Krit has a life-long love of cooking. As a young boy of just eight years old he would create and cook dishes for himself. After school he worked in a Thai restaurant part time, before going on to study at the prestigious California School of Culinary Arts, Le Cordon Bleu, where he learned the principles of French cooking. His impressive culinary pedigree includes working at Bouchon Bistro in Beverley Hills, California, owned by 3-star Michelin Chef Thomas Keller and in top kitchens in Japan. It's in these two countries that he was introduced to the modern techniques and artistic presentation that have come to define his unique style. With a fondness for the food and culture of the 80's and 90's, Chef Krit also endeavors to recreate treasured memories from his childhood. Today, we use his incredible knowledge and skill at basil to create a distinctly contemporary take on Thai cuisine while remaining true to authentic flavors.
Chef Krit believes that it is time to look beyond Thailand's standard dishes such as green curry, tom yum and pad Thai and introduce diners to less well-known local favorites. The forward-looking chef is a catalyst for change. He passionately believes that it's time to introduce diners to the incredible diversity of ingredients and regional dishes from around Thailand. For the new basil menu, he has chosen personal regional favorites and reinvented them for today's discerning diners.
Chef Krit's innovative menus at basil are a celebration of Thailand's incredible diversity and regionality. It's the "same same…but different" - the same great taste that diners expect from Thai cuisine but a totally different experience.
Join Chef Krit on an unforgettable journey of discovery with bold new dishes, exciting reinventions, artistic presentation and authentic flavors at Bangkok's finest Thai restaurant - basil.
